Gavin Rye’s review:
I first saw this film back in 2000 in the cinema and really didn't like it. I just didn't get it and fou7nd it pretty boring. 12 years on I finally got around to rewatching it and found out how wrong I was. A great film that works on so many levels. Every performance is spot on, Particualy the lead by Malcom McDowall. I really enjoyed that every character seems unique. Favourites of mine include Alex's reform officer (?) who spits in his face, and the officer in charge of him at the prison. The language used in the film is fantastic and it looks amazing too.
